Two strategic Project 955 Borey class nuclear-powered submarines of the Russian Navy will conduct single launches of transcontinental ballistic Bulava missiles in summer-autumn 2014 as directed by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. This was reported by a source in the General Headquarters of the Russian Navy.
Vladimir Monomakh is to undergo state tests in summer-autumn this year, including a sub-launch of a Bulava missile in the White Sea aquatorium. The missile will be fired toward the Kura test site in Russia’s far-eastern Kamchatka territory.
“Alexander Nevsky submarine will also conduct launches of Bulava missiles,” the source added. He also specified that “the two nuclear-powered submarines are expected to conduct four Bulava launches all together.”
